It was confirmed at the end of last month that Jake Paul will face off against Tommy Fury on December 18 at the 20,000-capacity Amalie Arena in Tampa Bay, Florida.
Paul, who comes into the bout with convincing wins against AnEsonGib, Nate Robinson, Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley under his belt, is extremely confident about his chances against the Manchester-born fighter.
Tommy Fury, also unbeaten, is likewise full of self-belief and so he should be. The former Love Island contestant will have legendary trainer Sugar Hill Steward in his corner alongside older brother Tyson Fury.
The 33-year-old has already started training younger brother Tommy ahead of next month's fight.
After the first morning session on Monday, Tyson said in a social media video: "Just finished my first day as a trainer. Really happy with myself and the way things went. All the boys trained hard. How was it Tommy? How you feeling?"
Tommy replied: "The run this morning was good. Good leg work, feeling good, feeling fit. Trainer T is doing the best job."
Tyson then asked: 'What's happening to Jake Paul?", to which Tommy replied: "You're getting knocked spark out. Two rounds."
Hours later, Logan Paul and his brother Jake starred in a video mocking the Fury's.
Back in October, Tyson Fury promised to retire his brother from boxing if he cannot defeat Jake Paul in December. In fact, he said Tommy would have to change his last name if he loses to the American YouTube personality.
"If Tommy can't splatter Jake Paul, I'll retire him from boxing myself. If he can't beat Jake Paul, forget about boxing," Fury told Boxing Social.
"Because he's got ambitions of being a world champion, never mind beating some YouTube guy. But it's a great fight for the social media world and for all the kids out there who support them both.
"It's a great fight to watch, it's a spectacle. But Tommy - his name's Fury. If he can't beat Jake Paul, I'll have to change his name."
Jake Paul, meanwhile, believes Tommy Fury will "crack under pressure" in their fight next month.
"He's only been put in there with opponents that were meant to lose," said Paul at this weekend's press conference.
"This is his first real test where his opponent isn't some guy who is just going to flop over.
"He has no idea what he's getting himself into. This is his first time under the big lights, on the big stage, and he's going to crack under pressure."
